In Vitro Maturation With in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Compared to Mild in Vitro Fertilization

2014-08-27 03:23:25 | BioPortfolio


Methods of infertility treatment may involve in vitro fertilization or IVF. Though effective, IVF is complex and expensive. Methods using no gonadotropin hormone stimulation of the ovaries are being compared to mild stimulation doses. The goal of the research is to determine which of these if more suitable as a low cost approach for varying individual patients.


Low cost environment is utilized, but fees are charged.

Evaluation of the Luteolytic Effect of a Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonist After the Administration of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the Initial Follicular Phase a Its Influence on the Prognosis of in Vitro Fertilization Treatment

This study was designed to evaluate the ability of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRh) agonist to prevent the rise of progesterone during controlled ovarian stimulation for in vitro fert...

Optimising FSH Dosage During in Vitro Fertilization Fertilization (IVF)

During in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment, women receive hormone stimulation with gonadotropins to induce growth of several ovarian follicles. Selecting the optimal dosage of gonadotro...

Dual Triggering in Patients With a High Immature Oocyte Rate

In in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, even after adequate triggering, some patients present a high rate of immature oocytes retrieved after controlled ovarian stimulation. In vitro oocyt...

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Acupuncture for Infertility

The aim of this investigation is to determine the value of combining acupuncture with infertility patients undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The investigators will measure the outco...

Androgens for Poor Responders in In Vitro Fertilization

it has been shown that androgens in non human primates may favour follicular growth in the ovaries when animals are treated with gonadotropins which are the hormones used in patients recei...

Added value today of hormonal measurements in ovarian stimulation in gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist treatment cycle.

Traditional approach of ovarian stimulation monitoring for in-vitro fertilization involves transvaginal sonography and serum estradiol measurements. Accumulating evidence has shown that hormonal evalu...

Stimulation of spermatogenesis in men with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is characterizes by infertility. In patients with congenital HH (CHH) is caused by the deficient production, secretion or action of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (G...

Expression pattern of new genes regulating female sex differentiation and in vitro maturational status of oocytes in pigs.

The processes underlying maturation of mammalian oocytes are considered crucial for the oocytes ability to undergo monospermic fertilization. The same factors of influence are suggested to impact the ...

Treatment with acetyl-l-carnitine during in vitro maturation of buffalo oocytes improves oocyte quality and subsequent embryonic development.

Oocyte quality is one of the important factors in female fertility, in vitro maturation (IVM), and subsequent embryonic development. In the present study, we assessed whether acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC)...

Is growth hormone administration essential for in vitro fertilization treatment of female patients with growth hormone deficiency?

Available evidence suggests that the fertility of growth hormone deficient female patients could be decreased, although the responsible mechanisms are unknown. Taking into account the multiple effects...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An assisted reproductive technique that includes the direct handling and manipulation of oocytes and sperm to achieve fertilization in vitro.

Methods used to induce premature oocytes, that are maintained in tissue culture, to progress through developmental stages including to a stage that is competent to undergo FERTILIZATION.

A medical-surgical specialty concerned with the morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and pathology of reproduction in man and other animals, and on the biological, medical, and veterinary problems of fertility and lactation. It includes ovulation induction, diagnosis of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, and assisted reproductive technologies such as embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes. (From Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Clinics of North America, Foreword 1990; Journal of Reproduction and Fertility, Notice to Contributors, Jan 1979)

The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.

A technique in assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED) consisting of hormonal stimulation of the ovaries, follicular aspiration of preovulatory oocytes, in-vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes at the pronuclear stage (before cleavage).
